CONCERNING Sacrificing Sacred Pentecostal Cows – Slain in the Spirit
IT IS TO BE NOTED FOR THE RECORD THE MISUSE AND ABUSE OF THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT DOESN’T INVALIDATE THEM
First of all, I want to make it clear that “falling under the power of the Holy Spirit” often called “being slain under the power of the Holy Spirit” is a legitimate work of the Holy Spirit. However, all of the examples that you share are demonstrations of the misuse of this particular work of the Holy Spirit. These foolish people are mis-using the Gift of the Holy Spirit which is called, “The Gift of Miracles”. They have turned it into “entertainment” when is was supposed to be used for individual ministry. I made this mistake only once and Jesus severely disciplined me. At a meeting at a Conference, of which I was told there was over 30,000 people, when I gave the altar call, invitation for prayer, I was told that about 5,000 people came for prayer, I was surprised to say the least. How does one evangelist prayer for all of these people. So, similar to what is shown Benny Hinn, I ran through the people and saw many people than I could count falling down as I ran through the crowd touching them and waving my coat. When I arrived back in my hotel room, I was thanking Jesus for the great ministry that night. He said, “There was no ministry tonight. All that you did was put on a great show. My ministry is not entertainment. No one received Salvation, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, healing or deliverance. From now on, when I send people to the altar, you will pray with each one of them for their needs regardless of how many people, even if it takes you all night.” And, at many of our meetings it takes many hours to pray with people individually and I experience “the Joy of the Lord which is our strength (Neh. 8: 10).
This is an example of ministry gone bad in order to feed one’s ego. It does not give glory to God. Also, in the midst of this kind of entertainment, people will get possessed and harassed by demons. This is the sign of a “counterfeit gift of the Spirit”. We can see this demonstrated when people start shaking uncontrollably and start making animal noises all in an attempt to imitate the necessary speaking in tongues which is supposed to be legitimate languages spoken in the world today or in the past. The Holy Spirit gives us “self-control” and the other “fruit of the Spirit. This is especially a breaking of the rules that Paul say must be followed. There should only be three messages given with interpretations by people who have the ‘’Gift of Interpretation of Tongues” (Gal. 5: 22 – 23). When people fall down under the power of the Holy Spirit, it is the “Gift of Miracles” that causes them to fall. It allows people to experience legitimate Salvation, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other languages they have never learned called tongues, Healing, deliverance. A pastor, who is a friend of mine, didn’t like this until she was caused to fall down in a meeting under the power of the Holy Spirit. She said, “The Holy Spirit puts us in a position so that Jesus can minister to us when otherwise we wouldn’t listen to Him”. It is not necessary for all people to fall down, only those who need a miracle as the Lord decides and so they can be equipped with the “Signs” Following which identify people as authentic believers (Mk. 16: 17 – 20). Often, when I am praying with people, I can tell when somebody wants the experience of falling down thinking that it will make them feel like better Christians. When I see this, I put one of my hands at the back of their neck so they can’t fall down. And, I explain that it is not necessary to fall down in order to have your needs met by Jesus. And, they do!
These people who cause people to fall down, most often, it is not the Holy Spirit but evil spirits who are working with them and like the Scribes and Pharisees, they cannot discern or know the difference, because like them, it can be said, as Jesus said, “You are wrong because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God” (Matt. 22: 29). We can also see by these would-be pastors, evangelist, apostles, self-appointed teachers life style and misused offerings which are spent on their own luxurious living, mansions, boats, jet planes and greed. They are using money given for ministry on themselves instead of ministry. They condemn themselves and encourage people to have “the love of money….which is the root of all evil” (1 Tim. 6: 10). We have to separate the legitimate gifts of the Holy Spirit (Rom. 12: 6 – 8; 1 Cor. 12: 8 – 10) from the Counterfeit gifts which are based on sin. The “Gift of Miracles” provide a wonderful healing of the body. The counterfeit gift provides an attractive religious experience that leaves people with a false hope and who will die rather than receive healing. Remember what the Apostle Paul said: “And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philip. 4: 19). Remember: it’s about needs, not greeds.

NOTE: 1 CORINTHIANS 12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: 8 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.
ANTI CHARISMATIC CHRISTIANS DON’T BELIEVE OR USE THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT INCLUDING WISDOM AND FAITH! OBVIOUSLY IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE BAPTISM OF THE SPIRIT AND DON’T OPERATE IN THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT INCLUDING FAITH, WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE, HEALING AND MIRACLES YOU WILL NOT GET HEALED BUT WILL DIE FROM YOUR TERMINAL SICKNESS.
